Rainbows and boats!
Too bad the boat is not at the end of the rainbow!
This was on Saturday May 30 while the peaceful protestors were downtown Charleston, which later turned unpeaceful. I wish it could always be a rainbow day!
We have been home for 5 weeks from our spring cruise which ended early because of the pandemic and we continued to stay home. For a change of scenery, we decided to get away and take a 2 night cruise so we packed up and cruised over to South Creek (aka Ocella Creek) between Edisto Island and Botany Bay Island. This view is towards the Edisto River and Seabrook Island.
It is a bit tricky getting into the creek but once you know the secret path, its a breeze!
🎼🎼 Summer Breeze...🎼 makes me feel fine...🎼🎼
The hydrangeas and gardenias and iris are blooming like crazy right now in the yard so I brought some along to enjoy
We spent the 2 days in the creek running around the other little creeks from there and exploring. The dinghy motor was acting up again when we last used it so we want to check it out as much as possible.
There are several oyster farms in the creek. This one is quite long but there is a smaller one not too far from our anchorage around the bend.
Sunsets were beautiful. Birds and dolphins were plentiful.
One of our excursions was to the beach. We tried to pull up to Botany Bay beach but the shells were just too plentiful and we were afraid of ripping another slash in the dinghy and the current was fierce.
We ended crossing the Edisto River over the Seabrook side and pulled up to the St Christopher Camp area which was a much better dinghy stopping place.
It was low tide as you can tell from this buoy.
We had a great walk on the beach.
A short trip welcoming summer.
The weather was great as the humidity was down and we had a wonderful seabreeze, never needed the AC!
Back home on Tuesday evening and we were welcomed by more blooms on the hydrangea. The one at the dock seems to really love that spot. This particular plant is one that we saved from the property over 10 years ago. It was a lone plant in the middle of the lot right where the driveway needed to go. We uprooted it and managed to save it and it happily can't decide whether to be blue or pink.
